Warm Hugs in Delco & $5,000 Grant to CHOP

During the week of Giving Tuesday 2021, BUCK’s masked bandits were at in again! They delivered 200 Warm Hugs to 5 Cancer Centers in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. These Warm Hugs were funded by the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Memorial Fund administered by Wells Fargo for cancer patients in Delaware County. A big Warm Hugs thanks to Ethel from BUCK!!

Our Warm Hugs were COVID-19 Care Packages, which included a mask, hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes, and were delivered to the wonderful cancer centers at the Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill, Crozer-Keystone Cancer Centers in Upland, Broomall and Brinton Lakes and the Cancer Center at Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital in Darby. Thanks to all the wonderful health care workers at these amazing Delco cancer centers, who take such good care of our local cancer community!

Speaking of amazing – BUCK is proud to announce another medical research grant. This time, we selected a Yoga study at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). This study focuses on the feasibility of using yoga as a pain management tool for pediatric cancer patients and will be led by Tracey Jubelirer, MD, an attending physician at the CHOP Cancer Center.

“Children can experience significant pain related to cancer itself and its treatments,” said Dr. Jubelirer. “Research on the use of non-pharmacologic therapies to alleviate cancer related pain is critical in understanding effectiveness of such interventions.” Dr. Jubelirer’s study will be limited to children with high-risk neuroblastoma, for which the immunotherapy treatment used can cause significant pain during infusion.

BUCK’s Medical Research Program accepts grant applications from May 1 to July 31. Over the last five years, the program has funded over $20,000 in research studies. To read more, please see our attached Press Release.
